How To Look Like Michael Myers

Welcome back to Haddonfield, Michael! Scare everyone when you're dressed in this Michael Myers costume.

The famous Halloween slasher horror movie franchise contains 10 total movies.

The first movie, Halloween, was released in 1978 and became and instant hit. The story focuses on Michael Myers who, as a child, murdered his older sister, Judith. He then gets committed to Smith's Grove Sanitarium from which he escapes, and returns to his hometown of Haddonfield, Illinois, where he stalks and murders unsuspecting people.

Throughout the film, Michael is referred to as pure evil by his psychiatrist, Dr. Sam Loomis.

The original film was directed by John Carpenter and stars Jamie Lee Curtis in her major film debut. The adult Michael Myers character (often referred to as "The Shape") was portrayed by Nick Castle.

When dressing up like Michael Myers, you'll need:

  • Captain Kirk Mask with widened eye holes and painted a bluish white
  • Blue coveralls
  • Workboots
  • Big, fake bloody knife

…the idea was that you couldn't kill evil, and that was how we came about the story. We went back to the old idea of Samhain, that Halloween was the night where all the souls are let out to wreak havoc on the living, and then came up with the story about the most evil kid who ever lived. And when John came up with this fable of a town with a dark secret of someone who once lived there, and now that evil has come back, that's what made Halloween work.
